Phoenix man dies in street-racing wreck

PHOENIX -- Phoenix police said a 19-year-old man was killed when his car collided with a pickup truck while he was street-racing with a third vehicle.

Police identified the dead man as Xavier Robles and said he was driving a Nissan Sentra, which had been racing in south Phoenix with a Chevrolet pickup Monday.

Robles was killed when his car collided with a Ford F-350 that rode up on the passenger compartment of the car.

Police Sgt. Trent Crump said the older-model Chevy pickup didn't stop.

The two people in the Ford pickup suffered nonlife-threatening injuries.

It was the second racing-related death in Phoenix in less than a month. On March 26, a bystander died from injuries suffered when two teens who were street racing caused a chain-reaction accident. Police charged the minors with manslaughter.
